Allegheny River Trail

A Beautiful Trail (any chance of adding a few port-a-potties along the way?)

October, 2017 by laurabarnard

This is certainly a beautiful trail in a spectacular natural setting and with a lot of history, too. Thanks to all the other reviewers for their helpful comments. I'd like to add a stronger pitch for at least a few port-a-potties along the way. Seriously, 32 miles with hardly any public toilet facilities??? We started in Emlenton, where there IS a port-a-potty which we foolishly ignored, and biked up 10 miles, when we suddenly wished we could find a toilet. Finally we turned around when other riders told us that nothing was available. We're from Wisconsin where there is generally a little town every 5 to 7 miles from the days when steam engines need to take on water that often, and you can usually find a bathroom if you'd like to do the opposite. Wisconsin state trails require a pass which is about $20 for the year, and well worth it if it provides for these kinds of facilities. Maybe Pennsylvania could do the same.

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Nice Scenic Trail

October, 2017 by sjohns133173

I enjoyed this bike trail but the entrance was a little confusing and awkwardly located . I was only able to find the entrance with help from another bike rider. First you park in the Riverfront parking lot, get on your bike, crossover 2 train tracks and cross a busy street and then back over to the other side via a 3-way intersection, to get to the trail entrance. But once you're on the trail it is awesome; going through the tunnel, seeing the high cliffs of chicques' rock and little streams.There are plenty of places to have a picnic too on the trail and watch the rock climbers or just sit relax and spend time with your family. I gave the trail 4/5 because the entrance of the bike trail is somewhat hard to find and confusing. Perhaps, in the future, they will build an easier trail entrance and then I would give it 5/5.

Oil Creek State Park Trail

Great trail

October, 2017 by jaredallison

This is a beautiful park (Oct 17) and a great, well-maintained trail through it. The trail does have moss on it in places, so though it is paved it isn’t necessarily great for rollerblading.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Still a bumpy ride in Martic and Conestoga Township sections

October, 2017 by jhtl

I had ridden this trail in the spring, from the Fairview Road parking area to the blocked-off bridge at Safe Harbor. The Providence Township section is smooth fine gravel. The Martic Township and Conestoga Township sections are more rough. The News and Events section of the Enola Low Grade Trail website (http://www.enolalowgradetrail.com/) indicated that Martic and Conestoga Townships planned to place a new surface on their respective trail portions in late spring, early summer of this year.  I rode the trail again October 6, and found that this work had not been done yet, so it was still a bumpy ride. I drove to the Manor Township extension of the trail and rode it - very nice.

Need to ride 10 mph to keep the flies off you.

Sandy Creek Trail

beautiful trail!

October, 2017 by jaredallison

Great trail in Oct 2017. Lovely foliage, bridges and tunnel. Note that to get between this trail and the Allegheny River Trail is a steep walk up/down a flight of wooden steps. Just be prepared to carry your bike. If you’re good with that, then it’s well worth it.

Allegheny River Trail

specifics on gap in trail

October, 2017 by jaredallison

This is a wonderful trail. If like me you read the other reviews and wondered exactly where the gap in the trail is, the north end starts at N Kent road, north of the tunnel by Kennerdell. So if you want to see either tunnel, start from the south end and ride north. Also: note that while this does intersect the Sandy River trail, they are not at the same elevation. You must climb a steep flight of wooden steps to get up to the other trail. Not a really big deal, as long as you’re okay carrying your bike up and down.

Lancaster Junction Trail

AWESOME TRAIL

October, 2017 by sjohns133173

This trail is very scenic and its so far my favorite trail. Its long enough to get a good workout but short enough to take my children with me and ride as a family. Its an excellent beginners trail. I recommend you ride this trail first and you will love it.

D & L Trail - Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail

Great easy day on the trail

October, 2017 by robert.richter89

I recently rode from White Haven to Jim Thorpe and back. The trail is in immaculate condition with no ruts or major debris. It is a very tightly packed gravel which makes it really easy to ride on. I rode on a Friday and the trail wasn't very busy and the people on the trail were very nice and courteous.

The only suggestions I would have for any perspective riders would be to plan ahead for food, water and bathrooms. There are no places besides White Haven and Jim Thorpe to get water or food. There are two bathrooms on the trail one ten miles away from White Haven and one three miles away from Jim Thorpe. Both White Haven and Jim Thorpe are quaint towns to spend time in.

Stony Valley Railroad Grade

A nice change of pace. Great Duel Sport Bike Ride.

October, 2017 by turkmon20

Personally one of my favorite Trails I’ve ridden. You won’t rip through this trail. A little ruff in some parts of Trail. Slow down a bit and you will be fine. I would not bring a high dollar road bike on this one. Oh and No Cell Service! My Favorite Part! Enjoy
